When you go to Lanzarote, you're probably going to want to spend as much time as possible on the beach. One of the many great advantages of staying at the VIK Hotel San Antonio is that it is the perfect location, right on the beach at Puerto del Carman.
Everything's close at hand when you stay at the VIK Hotel San Antonio including the superb Playa de los Pocillos beach. You'll be on the sand in seconds, or you can be exploring the vibrant resort of Puerto del Carmen in minutes. Want to explore further afield? There are bus and taxi stops right outside the door of the hotel.
We don't think you'll want to spend too long away from the beach or the hotel though. VIK Hotel San Antonio is a top-notch four star hotel. Everything has been beautifully designed and is a visual delight that makes great use of the available space.
As an alternative to cooling off in the sea, you might fancy a dip in the pool. The hotel swimming pools are set in lush gardens in the shade of some lofty palm trees. The gym - part of the hotel's wellness centre - is another great feature. Again, impeccably designed and sure to inspire you. There are excellent tennis facilities too.
En suite side seaview rooms at the VIK Hotel San Antonio are spacious and come with great views as standard. You can enjoy the views best from your balcony or terrace and upgrades to sea-view rooms are also available - just ask for details. In room facilities include plasma screen satellite TV, telephone, hair dryer, safe* and mini-bar*.
With an exceptional restaurant; even a cocktail bar, the VIK Hotel San Antonio is a very easy place to stay. You've got the location, the amenities and the beach; all yours to enjoy...

VIK Hotel San Antonio benefits from an excellent beachfront location on Playa de los Pocillos in Lanzarote and has two swimming pools set in lush gardens and sheltered by impressive palm trees. With a bus and taxi stop right outside the hotel, the local bars, restaurants and shops are all within easy reach.
The Vik San Antonio hotel is situated about half way along the promenade of Puerto del Carmen with Playa de los Pocillos and Playa de Matagorda to the east, Playa Grande and Playa Chica to the west. So it was a nice walk almost to the airport one way and to the harbour/old town the other. Reception staff were all extremely polite with a varying level of knowledge. We stayed in a double room with a full sea view and a balcony. The room was more than adequate and was well lit...
Comfortable bed, two chairs, small table, dressing table, wardrobe and a/c. There was also a safe, for which there is usually a charge – I have no idea why there is charge. If the room has a safe, it costs nothing to run! There was a locked fridge/mini-bar; even if you only wish to use the fridge for your own items, there is a charge. Again, why charge when the fridge is there already?! The TV has a few English-speaking channels. There are no modern USB charging sockets, so bring a distribution block and chargers. Only two sockets in the room; one in the bathroom. The bathroom was compact – shown by the reduced width of the door. All fine within – large mirror and well lit. No shaving/makeup mirror. Good hair dryer fixed to the wall – coiled lead restricted its use. The over-bath shower was good. The room was excellently cleaned every day – absolutely no problems there. Our arrival was delayed due to the calima sand storm, so the receptionist told us that we were getting a room upgrade to a refurbished room. If that was the case, the other rooms must be really run down. Our room was fine, not recently refurbished! Best described as ‘tired’ and could do with a make-over. In fact the entire hotel, with the exception of reception, could use it. Everything worked well, just not modern. Our accommodation was half-board. Breakfast was quite good – even the Americano out of the coffee machine! All the usual types of foods including omelettes to order. All food/drink was self-service. Dinner was another array of self-service foods. As much and as often as wished. The downside here was the quality, which varied from fair to poor. If you can tolerate all the walking to and from the counters, then it is fine. In a four star hotel, I like to be served. There were plenty of waiters hovering around – two duties: to sell you drink and to snatch your plate away as soon as it appeared that you had cleared a plate. Don’t try to ask a question about the food! There are steps to encounter accessing the restaurant or accessing the food counters, as far as we could see. Open to correction on this, but we could not see how a wheel chair could operate or how a person with difficulty negotiation steps could manage. Live music every evening in the lounge. After four days, we came across the hotel’s information board. A pity that it wasn’t pointed out on our arrival. On information – no useful hotel/resort information is available in the room. On staff generally, there was a lack of 1:1 contact/communication. This didn’t cause any particular issue, but its absence was obvious. The pool was a very pleasant area with plenty of sun-beds. There was a bar area beside the pool and direct access to the beach. The sand on this little beach isn’t a pure, white sand. Swimming in the sea could be a problem, as there were rocks the whole way along the water’s edge adjacent to the hotel.
Thank you to all the staff in the san Antonio, we had a fabulous week and enjoyed every minute of our recent stay. The food as always was exceptional, freshly prepared with loads of variety. All staff were helpful, friendly and highly efficient...
The hotel may be a little old fashioned but its spotlessly clean and I look forward to returning again next year.
This large hotel is very welcoming. Comfortable rooms very friendly and helpful staff. Positioned to over look the sea close to the town spotlessly clean delicious food...
Stayed at the start of the coronavirus outbreak were made to feel safe by the cleaning and hygienic practices put in place. So hope to visit again in the future. Thank you for a restful and lovely holiday despite the circumstances.
We were there in December. Regular Returning Guests.Where there seemed to be a major problem with the all inclusive international brands drinks package .Midway through our holiday Captain Morgan Rum was going to be charged for& seemed to be a lot of changes happening that most staff new nothing about .Management I.T.sitting at the bar virtually 24/7 on laptops trying to change things ,Off putting to say the least it was a holiday we were on not an office seminar We have emailed hotel & had no reply to our Questions. The food was Luke warm as well for some reason where in the past was hot. Apart from that a good Hotel & staff friendly.
The VIK Hotel San Antonio was ideally situated for us. We were able to walk in safety to Arricife in one direction and to the old town in the other. We also cycled in safety to Costa Tequise. The hotel is a lovely place, it's always clean & the staff are friendly & obliging...
I was a bit concerned in the first couple of days as I have to have shade, but this wasn't really an issue. There are plenty of sun loungers around the pool (heated) which is adjacent to the (public) beach. There is a good selection of food for every meal, although sometimes it wasn't particularly hot, however was easily rectified by the microwave oven at the food counter. The initial entertainment (up to 10pm) was very good but we never stayed for the main entertainment from 10pm.
We were AI and did not have similar problems as other reviewers. We enjoyed our stay and would certainly return another time. In the last few days of our holiday, we came under the restrictions in place because of the coronavirus, but the staff remained friendly & helpful throughout the difficulties, which, although confined to our room for a couple of days was merely inconvenient, it was no great problem.
